    Put in link when it's done checking and w/e click on and a box will appear saying Conversion successfully completed!
    Then Click here to download your converted file. But its not worth I have a great download speed and its going to take a hour to download one song?
    No thanks.

    I've made good experience with http://keepvid.com/.

    The only drawback is that the audio quality on youtube is quite poor - unless that's related to keepvid?

    I like to use Cosmopod because I download a lot of videos for instructional presentations. It appears as a button on Safari's address bar. It downloads, converts, allows tagging and puts it where you want it. It accommodates several mac friendly video formats. I got it at a promo price, but for the ease of use and timesaving features, I think it is well worth the full $12.
